The script just renames the packages and keeps the versions (more or
less) intact. The problem for etch/sid is that there are some packages
in the depends that sarge didn't have. You have to add those to the
package list for conversion and with a little bit of luck you don't
need any special casing for them.


PS: I'm nearly done restoring the amd64-archive functionality in
cross-archive. After that I will upload it.
